Longford’s Ellen Murphy will miss Ireland’s Six Nations game against Wales this Sunday.
Defence coach Kieran Hallet explained the outhalf has a “low-grade” calf injury but will hopefully be back for the England game.
Hooker Cliodhna Moloney has passed her return-to-play protocols and could feature.
As could Eimear Considine who is back running with the squad after recovering from a knock.
Hallett added that Larissa Muldoon is primed and ready to fill the vacant outhalf berth.
